, again according to the free beacon the fbi is aware of what happened and they're looking into it but some of these attackers are notoriously difficult to track down. in fact, just a few days ago the secretary of homeland security, janet napolitano, walked, excuse me, talked about major security threats the nation faces and she focused specifically on cyber attacks. >> one of those of course is the threat of a major cyberattack. an attack that disables critical infrastructure, an attack that impacts thousands if not millions of americans. indeed we saw with hurricane sandy what happens when a major piece of critical infrastructure like your electricity grid goes down for a prolonged period. and our cyber infrastructure, our cyber networks, are ripe for those types of attacks. >> reporter: janet napolitano by the way is a member of the council on foreign relations. this attack was apparently detected relatively quickly but, jon, it may underscore the vulnerability a lot of computer networks face in this country. jon: well, so the website is working and it was, as you say, i

guns there's more homicide. >> that's simply not true. our fbi data and our national government data show that the higher murder rates, the higher violent crime rates are in areas where gun ownership is discouraged and carrying is either illegal or discouraged. i don't know what they were looking at at harvard, but that is absolutely not what the data show. >> if you also look at the top ten states across the country and per capita gun ownership. five of those top ten states also have the highest gun deaths per capita. how do you explain that? >> they still have a low violent crime rate and a lower murder rate. so you're talking numbers versus rates, and i think that's probably where the disparity is coming in. >> last question for you here, larry. when we look at the problem ahead of us, several gun shows canceled in the wake of the newtown shooting, doesn't that go against the message that the nr ascent yesterday canceling the gun shows that canceling gun shows at least according to mr. lapierre's statements, need to be at schools and need to defend themselves. >> each gun show is

not been discussed is how quickly or the fbi -- i was troubled by how long it took the fbi to get to the scene, and we need to make sure that we are falling back to where we were before september 11 where things get stovepipe within agencies information is not being communicated, and when agencies are not working together. senator mccain pointed out an example, that there were eyewitnesses that it took days for us to get information, about what those by witnesses had seen, which would have cleared up a misrepresentation that was made about the reaction to the video from day one. i think those questions have to be answered to make sure that we prevent future attacks like this. >> there will be as we know nominations coming forward for a secretary of defense, a new director of the cia. these questions will be part of that process. they will be part of our obligation as our role of advice and consent. questions? >> you talked about the failure of leadership the report highlights. do you think people above should be held accountable? i know secretary clinton is leading. >> the buck al

the right lessons learned that has to be completed in terms of investigation. we need the fbi to finish the criminal investigation to find out the perpetrators, terrorists, that did this so we can get them. second, in what the talking points episode was all about, how come the interagency, good reasons or bad reasons, changed those talking points overtime? we need -- as senator feinstein once said, to understand the process so it's done better in the future. a big believer of lessons learned and applying them. which didn't happen in the state department this time. it was not needing, the restriction and requirements of the last accountability review board completed in 1999. we didn't have that meeting those standard and learned that lesson again. >> a painful one indeed. good to see you as always. many thanks. >> happy holidays. >> and to you in the one-minute play back, weird holiday traditions. jimmy fallon had #latenig #latenighthashtags. he asked viewers to send in weird holiday traditions. after june wrapping a present, we ball up the paper and throw it at the ceiling fan and cheer
